Paladr Gets a Blood-Tempered Ranseur

Thanks to the help of first Ravenkiller, and then Nynave joining us, Paladr got all of the mats for the [tag]Blood-Tempered Ranseur[/tag]. I must say it is heavy and swings like a monster. It may have lower dps than my sword, but the stats make it a true paladin weapon of finery.

Blood-filled orb in RFC

Raven and I started out by doing Ragefire Chasm by ourselves and taking down what appears to be Omen’s little brother, Zelemar the Wrathful. No one really gave up much of a fight in RFC, but I will admit we almost died a few times because of the number of adds we got from spawning patrols. We took down 6 level 15-16 elites in one prolonged fight. [Read more…]

Ding 22; Belf Paladin Training Sucks

I dinged 22 last night while killing the naga around Zoram Strand, just having a good old time with my Sin’dorei Warblade, which I leveled all the way up to level 21’s max. I ventured into Blackfathom Deeps area, for the first time ever. I don’t know why I’ve never run BFD, but I haven’t, so there. I need to get a Corrupted Kor Gem from one of the naga, but when I got into the entrance tunnel, I saw a level 20 Elite and turned tail back to finish my quest some other time.

I’m really not liking the prospect of traveling to Silvermoon every time I want to train my new class skills. I’m in Camp Turajo, for crying out loud. It’s not exactly close to anything that gets me to the translocator. I’m sure as heck not leaving my hearthstone somewhere that I use every 2-4 levels, but the trips are going to be agony.

Paladin Level 20 Quest; The Second Trial

I got to level 20 and was totally thrilled with the questline that I got to go through to get a new spell (which was kind of lame) and the start of a quest for a new forged Rare polearm. I can pretty much guarantee you that you will enjoy the quest called The Second Trial.

The Second Trial; BloodvalorFirst step: hit level 20. Duh! That’s what makes it a level 20 quest, but sometimes the obvious needs stating. Knight-Lord Bloodvalor once again sends you on your way to be tested, this time quite a bit closer. You need to travel back through the]Ruins of Silvermoon to the little building Northeast of the gate leading back to the newbie area.

Ding 21; Very Hectic Week

It was a very crazy weekend after my wife’s alternator gave out again. Combine that with the garage sale, shopping for her new work clothes, getting some R&R at the pool, and stuff, that made for a very busy weekend.

In-game, I got Paladr to 18 before we went into The Deadmines and rocked that joint. Naturally, the Deathroom that was the goblin engineering room got us a time or two, but it was smooth sailing after that. Of course, dinging 19 helped a tad. I got upgrades of nearly every piece of armor, plus a sword.

I hit 21 this morning and Paladr is on his way to Sunrock Retreat. He got Dar’Khan before leaving Ghostlands Sunday morning, putting him at Exalted with Tranquillien. I love getting a nice blue weapon in the starting area. 🙂 Not to mention the Exalted cloak.

Paladr is no longer going for a record pace after taking forever to do DM, but he is still scooting along at a far better than average gallop. His level 20 was 15h 25m. I’m going to enjoy playing a pally, and will still follow the guide’s track on quests, but experience all of the Paladin stuff, such as forging the weapon for the level 20 questline reward.

I have a ton of screenshots from the weekend, but a very hectic week coming up. I just got into the office, so we’ll see if nothing is happening. If we’re dead today, I’ll put them up and write more posts. If not, I’m sorry, but work is work.
